He signed 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations on his first evening in the Oval Office, far more than any other recent president. They were aimed at halting or reversing some of Donald Trump's most controversial policies. Wearing a mask while seated behind the Resolute Desk, Mr Biden said there was "no time to start like today". His first action was an executive order that all US government employees wear face coverings. Immigration and the environment were also a major focus. Washington Correspondent Nick Allen explains what has changed - and what Mr Biden has in his sights. View the best pictures from yesterday's ceremony, read US Editor Ben Riley-Smith's analysis of Mr Biden's address and see how the world's newspapers reacted. While Mr Trump broke long-standing practice by skipping Mr Biden's inauguration, he did follow through on one tradition by leaving behind a note for his successor. The new Democratic president said Mr Trump "wrote a very generous letter". Mr Biden also made changes to how the Oval Office is decorated, risking a transatlantic spat with Britain after it appeared he had decided not to display a bust of Sir Winston Churchill.
